The guests are arriving; the dress has been delivered, the mother has flown in - what more is left to tackle on the royal wedding agenda? It’s a bustling time at the palace where all hands are on deck to ensure the marvelous occasion goes off without a hitch.
Sadly, before the day has even started, there have been a few hiccups along the way. Drama has been swarming around the Markle family as news outlets have run rampant with various stories concerning recent actions.
This, undoubtedly, has caused a great deal of unnecessary stress on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Planning and preparing for a wedding is stressful enough, much less if you have wild drama swarming about them.
Mere days before the wedding, mother-of-the-bride, Doria Ragland, arrived in London to spend the final days with her daughter. For Meghan, her mother has always been a friend and strong comfort to her, so knowing she is with her now is a massive weight off of her shoulders.
One event leading up to the wedding has had many people brimming with curiosity. The moment of truth has finally arrived where Doria has the opportunity to meet the parents of her soon-to-be son-in-law: Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
This has been a highly anticipated event where the families will formally meet for the very first time. The occasion took place at the Clarence House, which is where Charles and Camilla officially live.
The one-hour meeting was meant to be anything but intimidating, where the three enjoyed a pleasant afternoon tea together. I’m sure it was thrilling for all parties involved as they got the opportunity to learn a bit more about one another.
Meghan has already made quite the impression on her soon-to-be in-laws. Charles has referred to her as “charming and very bright” while Camilla is said to have commended her for making an excellent transition to her new life as a royal.
With all this going for her, that only paved the way for a wonderful meeting and introduction for her mother. It will be interesting to see just how their relationship will pan out over the years. One can only imagine the butterflies that would come upon the initial meetings of royals, much less royals that will be forever considered family!
We cannot wait to see just how the future unfolds for this beautiful couple. They have proven thus far that they can withstand any adversity thrown their way. Their love is completely evident, and they will certainly have one another’s back through the good times and bad. Hurry up, May 19th!
